    iMac Late 2013 purchased 2015. 16gb RAM i5. This morning screen just stayed black. Would not light up. Tapped the keys, pad nothing. You can hear the drives going, its on. Just would not wake up. Had to tap the power button on the back a few worked and I logged on. Decided to try and reboot. Stuck. iTunes wouldn't respond, Mail, App Store, Notes, Calendar all stuck won't quit. Forced quit all of them then Finder unresponsive. lol Ok so I shut it off with the power button. So my first hard crash with Sierra.... Anyone else experience this?

    Happened again today. Sierra is not as stable as El Capitan it seems.

    A lot of people have been having problems with Sierra after they upgraded, and I think you should try performing a clean install if that is feasible to you.

    Yeah happened again today. Finder just unresponsive. All I had was iTunes running after it was updated. Tried to quit iMovie and it froze, then iTunes wouldn't quit, Finder wouldn't quit, had to hold down the power button to shut down and reboot. I'll have to do a clean install soon. At least I have Time Machine backup to restore from.
